I got some bulbs growing wild last spring on a rock ledge in about an inch of dirt in east texas / lake livingston last year. They were small dark yellow flowers with bright red centers Only one bloomed this spring and I missed it ( so no picture to share), so I went back last week to see if I could get a couple more. I was surprised to see there were a bunch about to bloom (which surprised me as before they bloomed in spring), so I dug some up. Turns out they were different than the ones I got last spring as these look like miniature white tulips. There are pink stripes on the underside of three petals on most of these. Only a few are solid white on the underside. All have the little yellow centers. Can someone tell me what these are.

I also have these little yellow bulbs I bought. I was told these were hurricane lillies, but they aren't. Would have been able to tell if had been blooming when I bought them. A friend said she thought they were daylillies. Can someone confirm? The yellow and red bulbs I mentioned at the beginning looked kind of like these but with red centers so if you know what they might be let me know so I can look them up.

All of these are bulbs and have flower seed pods when the flowers are done. Thanks to the community!
